Shuzhuang Garden


The waterfront Shuzhuang Garden on the southern end of the island is a lovely place to linger for a few hours. It has a small pénzāi (bonsai) garden, some delicate-looking pavilions and a rock garden with the 12 animal statues of the Chinese zodiac. A piano museum housed within the grounds holds one piano with its original bill of sale from Melbourne at the turn of the 20th century.
